Best Fantasy Books of 2016
If you look at what's being released by the Big Six publishers, small press publishers, not to mention the hordes of indie fantasy releases, then there would be hundreds (maybe thousands?) of new fantasy books to pick through.
But just because a book is anticipated, doesn't mean it's necessary going to be any good when released, or worth your money buying.
And that's where this new list comes in -- my new Best Fantasy Books of 2016. This is my attempt to keep you current on the best of this year's release.
It's a huge effort to keep up with all the fantasy and to keep you guys current. So this is a list I'll make a point of keeping up-to-date every couple months with new books, with the whole list sorted by my preference for the best.
About This List And How I Pick The Books
We are listing some of our FAVORITE picks for the best fantasy that's been published this year: that is, the fantasy books published in 2016 that a) we've read and b) we'd recommend you read.
I'm not using any scientific formula or special algorithm to compile on this list. These are books I've read and the books I feel stand as the best so far. Feel free to vote on the books or submit new ones on the CROWD LIST below -- this provides are more scientific (or at least crowd popular) alternative to my own curated list.
Keep in mind that we will be updating this list every month or two (and it only covers books that have been thus far released at time of updating).
At the end of the year, we'll have a conclusion 'Best of 2016' list over on the blog that will wrap the year up and pick the best of the best.
So expect the books on this list and the rankings to wildly change as the year progresses.
